East Hampton Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4 baths, heated 50' pool, sleeps 9, great entertaining space

Magnificent Village Tudor. This secluded, historic gem features majestic living/entertaining quarters, A/C, and a 50' heated, gunite pool. This 8000 sq. ft. home with soaring cathedral ceilings and immense limestone fireplace, dates from 1916. In its earlier days it was a much beloved theater, called The Playhouse. Short stroll to town, theaters, shops, galleries, restaurants, to the Duck Pond, and to the best sparkling ocean beaches. In addition to 5 airy bedrooms, 4.5 baths and outdoor pool shower, The Playhouse features a vast and dramatic great room ( the former theater) with a Steinway grand piano.

For entertaining or relaxation, there is no more beautiful place. Enjoy the 3+ lush acres of vintage landscaping, stone terraces, heated pool, and graceful fountain. All original detail has been preserved, making The Playhouse a perfect mix of classic design and modern amenities - in the heart of East Hampton.

The Real Thing: The Playhouse one of a Kind - In the heart of East Hampton, yet in a timeless world of its own. An impeccably maintained 1916 estate, with original detail lovingly preserved, the house and property provide a unique retreat. There's nothing like it in the Hamptons.

Arts Lovers: All Summer and into the fall, The Hamptons are the center of arts and social life: superb cultural exhibits, first run movies, world class music recitals, as well as gallery events, celebrity author readings, antiques fairs, home and garden tours, the Hamptons Classic, and gala Opening Nights. Attend new & classic plays at Bay Street Theater and Guild Hall. In October, East Hampton is home to the Hampton's Film Festival. Discoveries abound at this intimate, star studded showcase of what's next in the world of movies.

The Playhouse, while utterly secluded, is located at the heart of the Hamptons' vibrant arts and social scene.

Outdoor Pleasures: Endless, unspoiled ocean beaches are less than 5 minutes' drive from The Playhouse - as well as fishing, boating, tennis, biking, horseback riding. The Wildllife Preserve that borders the property offers enchanting trails, streams, wooden bridges, and a Duck Pond that delights children of all ages. Adjoining ponds and waterways are home to abundant wildfowl all year long.

Bicycle to Village, marinas, parks, bay beaches, and well loved Hamptons locales: Georgica, Lily Pond Lane, Springs, Sag Harbor, Shelter Island Ferry, Cedar Point, Lazy Point, Walking Dunes, 3 Mile Harbor.

Why Mirra Bank Brockman chose East Hampton

This perfectly preserved private home defines the historic Woodhouse Family legacy that created East Hampton as an arts-loving summer destination in the years from 1910-1920. The Playhouse was built by Mary Woodhouse for her daughter, in 1915, and has belonged only to the Woodhouse and Brockman families since then. The Playhouse has been lovingly and artfully maintained to preserve all its unique characteristics of a Tudor Playhouse turned luxury private residence.

What makes this estate unique

Magnificent entertaining setting with gracious bedrooms and en suite baths; heated, saltwater 50' gunite pool, original fountains, stone terraces, garden sculptures and towering copper beeches as well as original specimen plantings. A/C, laundry, chef's kitchen. Magical interior balconies and 40' cathedral ceilings in the Great Room.

Fairy tale site with all modern conveniences.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is beyond lovely …enchanting. I am delighted with it.

We never imagined that we would find a private home of such architectural and historical interest on a vacation rental website. Our weekend at the Playhouse was an escape from an escape! It was so quiet and the gardens are so lovely and otherworldly that we felt transported from the bustle of the Hamptons when we wanted to be, but were close enough to town to walk.

What perfection!

We had such a cozy weekend … lit the fire and then enjoyed hot wine in front of its flames.

I hope to have the good fortune of renting the house again sometime in the future.

Thank you very much

Warm regards

East Hampton Hamptons

An absolutely beautiful, elegant escape.

The "Play House" as it's called, was a phenomenal location for our summer get away. The huge, historic estate combines all your modern day comforts (TV in the bedroom, great bathrooms, comfortable beds, amazing kitchen) with the allure and enchantment of the early 1900's. Several of us, all who work in the arts, stayed here and we were completely inspired by the house. We enjoyed sitting in the quiet gardens and swimming in the long pool. The property was clean, very well-maintained and stunning with antique decor.

A five minute walk, we could quickly be in the center of town on the main street for shopping, restaurants, pubs and the movies.

A two minute drive gets you right to the beach, although I chose to take a lovely 15 minute walk through the woody, neighborhood to look at all the other houses.

Mirra, the owner, is lovely, very easy to talk to and most helpful. She was quick to answer my questions and give any advice I needed regarding travel and the area.

I would recommend this property to anyone. A family (I suggest children 8 years or older) would enjoy the ample amount of space, a group of friends would have numerous spots to hang out, romantic couples could get lost in the fantasy of another era, artists will feel the creative weight that is held within the walls. It's a wonderful space and I hope to return again for another romantic, creative retreat.

Many thanks Mirra for preserving and sharing such a wonderful landmark.
